American Idol Top 5 Review: Back to the 1960s...

by at . Comments

There were no bell bottoms om stage. And we didn't notice a single civil rights protest.

But the American Idol finalists still took us back to the 1960s last night for their first round of performances. Who stood out? Joshua Ledet. Who might be in trouble? We're afraid to say, but Skylar Laine. Decide for yourself now as you watch the opening quintet of covers and then vote on your favorite...

Sauntering to the stage with her backup singers, Hollie Cavanagh went up tempo with "River Deep Mountain High.

Phillip Phillips pulled out his guitar once again and wrote "The Letter" to fans.

How about a little CCR from Skylar Laine? Not our favorite performance of hers, but perhaps you were rocking along to "Fortunate Son."

Jessica Sanchez showed off her range once again with "Proud Mary." But the moving around the stage and fussing with her hair was a bit distracting.

Joshua Ledet "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and we ain't too proud to say: incredible job here.

WHICH 1960S COVER WAS YOUR FAVORITE?

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
